Doug Rauch, former president of Trader Joe’s, will deliver the keynote at the 2017 Global Cold Chain Expo, United Fresh and International Floriculture Expo Joint Opening General Session, set for June 14.

Rauch’s career with Trader Joe’s spanned 31 years, where he served as a company president for the last 14 years of his tenure, playing a pivotal role in the Southern California-based chain growth from nine to more than 340 stores in 30 states.

Before retiring from Trader Joe’s in 2008, he developed the company’s buying philosophy, created its private food label program, and wrote and executed the business plan to make Trader Joe’s a national chain. He championed the development and execution of Trader Joe’s University and the customer experience orientation.

“Doug Rauch’s ability to transform a unique retail model like Trader Joe’s into a wildly successful national chain is an amazing story and one that really resonates with third-party logistics companies, especially those who handle distribution services for the store,” said Corey Rosenbusch, Global Cold Chain Alliance president and CEO. “It will also be fascinating to see how the cold chain industry played a role in implementing Rauch’s vision and facilitating Trader Joe’s growth.”

Rauch is currently co-CEO of Conscious Capitalism, which looks at how higher purpose, stakeholder integration, conscious leadership and conscious culture can simultaneously build stronger businesses and improve society as a whole.

He is also a recent senior fellow at the Harvard University Advanced Leadership Initiative.

Rauch received his executive MBA from the Peter Drucker School of Management at Claremont University, where he won several awards, including the Early Career Outstanding Entrepreneur Award.

The Global Cold Chain Expo 2017 Joint Opening General Session will take place June 14, from 8:30 to 9:45 am at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago IL. This event is open to all attendees of the Global Cold Chain Expo, United Fresh and the International Floriculture Expo.
